Macnas has provided training opportunities for third level students from The Lir, IADT (Dun Laoghaire) and since 2012 has devised and delivered a module in Street Theatre Practice for NUI Galway’s BA in Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies.
The twelve-week module at NUI Galway exposes the students to all aspects of a busy theatre production company and provides intensive training in physical performance and the art of street theatre.
At the end of the module, students are assessed by Macnas performance facilitator Jonathan Gunning, Miquel Barcelo and Artistic Director Noeline Kavanagh.
Macnas look forward to continue this relationship with NUI Galway in 2015/2016.
At the end of the module students presented an outdoor performance on campus under the direction of Macnas.
